PEDAL POWER

If you're keen to take a cycling holiday this summer, where better than Provence? The region's gentle slopes provide ideal terrain for any two-wheeled traveller. Utracks has one week-long option that departs and ends in Graveson, with stops in Tarascon, Arles and St-Rémy for £795pp. Bike hire, hotels, most meals and luggage transfers included, with departures until 31 October, but not flights (utracks.com).

SPLASH OUT

The Malaysian island of Langkawi offers a slice of luxury in the Andaman Sea. For travel between 1 May and 17 July, Turquoise Holidays has a 10-night trip to The Datai – a 125-room retreat, surrounded by tropical forest, with a pool, private beach and golf course. The price of £2,120pp includes breakfast, Malaysian Airlines flights from Heathrow and private transfers (turquoiseholidays.co.uk).

BEACH BLISS

For a fuss-free escape to the Greek Islands, consider Sunvil Holidays. On 26 May, it has a week in Corfu, based at the self-catering Ammos Bay apartments, set back from the beach in the village of Agios Gordios. The price of £446pp includes Gatwick flights and transfers (sunvil.co.uk).

SUMMER SUN

On 17 June, Classic Collection Holidays has a week in Mallorca for £799pp. Based at the Mallorca Palace hotel, a traditional five-star property on the quiet east coast near S'illot and Sa Coma, the package includes breakfast, flights from Gatwick and private transfers (classic-collection.co.uk).
